Now this is the kind of report that makes my heart sing! ‘Oso’ is one of Dory and Cesar’s males born July 26, 2014, and I vividly remember Vic’s wife did not want a dog. Obviously Oso was a great choice! I have written in my book when he was only a few weeks old, ‘laid back’ and he certainly is playing the part. I am thrilled to get this update as I hadn’t heard how this pup was doing. Thanks Victor, you definitely brightened my whole week! Oso’s family wrote:

He has been an exceptional puppy (and now dog), this is my wife’s first dog ever and I keep telling her that she should not think that all dogs are like him. To put things in context, Oso only had one accident in our house! He’s playful without being out of control. He cries when he gets hungry (which is fair!) and sometimes when he is put in the kitchen when his paws are wet but otherwise he’s super chill and quiet. Yes, he had destroyed his beds (2 already) but he has not touched any of our furniture, shoes or whatnot, he understands which are his toys and he doesn’t touch anything else. We have found a solution for his bed which seems to be working well so far. He’s not aggressive by any stretch and what has been the most important thing for us is that he’s the best running buddy! There has been a few runs when I have taken his leash off and he had run right beside me! I have had dogs before and I know Oso’s behavior is not the norm! Long story short, we are very happy with Oso, as I told you earlier, Oso is my wife’s first pet ever and she was a bit nervous at first, but she is just being spoiled with such a well behaved dog that she thinks having a dog is super easy! The one and only problem we have with him, it is impossible to get mad at him!


It seems this entire litter had a reoccurrence of worms, which is a common puppy thing but is usually cleared up by two dewormings by the time they are 8 weeks old, apparently this didn’t work with this litter as this is the third pup that I have been told had worms. I am thinking maybe one of the dewormers was past expiry date as I never have this problem, now I can’t say that. I usually write on the envelope to have them dewormed again when they go for spay or neutering and that they should get their rabies booster at that time. I keep my dogs on a regular deworming program to avoid this. Just like horses and cats, dogs need to be dewormed regularly. Oso’s family wrote:

Oso (that’s how we ended up naming him) is doing great.During the first few days at home we realized that he had worms (a lot of them), we took him to a vet right away and he was given a de-wormer. Since then he has grown like crazy and he has been way more active. He has also been great in the house, in terms of accidents, he had only pooped once inside the house, he had peed a couple of times but no accidents in the last few days. so all in all he has been a really easy puppy to have! He’s also great on the leash AND off the leash. We are really happy to have him and i think he’s happy too (I hope)
